There is a pretty interesting 2 page article on pg 72 of this week's Relix. It talks about the controversy, and lays much of the blame on Weir and the drummers. The article takes a pretty even handed approach to the controversy, talks a little about Brewster and the site and comes off as fairly neutral as to the effect the policy may have on sales.

Relix has always been behind..it's been weak since 1980.
Now, it is nearly pointless.

Could that be why they pulled "THE" sb's, so they could remaster and "get it up" in the mix?

YOU ARE A CLOWN - THIS IS A DSERUOUS ISSUE THAT SHOULD NOT DIE. THE BAND ARE BEING SHORT-SIGHTED, GREDDY A-H---- ON THIS ONE AND LOTSO F US OLD TIMERS ARE VERY SOCK OF IT. yOU OBVIOUSLY HAVE NOT SPENT SO MANY THOUSANDS OF DOLLARS ON CONCERTS LIKE SOME OF USW, OR YOU WOULD BE PISSED ALSO. I ECHO LASTCALL'S THOUGHTS 100%. ALL THIS DOES IS SHRINK THEIR MARKET, NOT EXPAND IT, BECAUSE SO MANY PEOPLE ARE BOYCOTTING THEORI OFFICIAL RELEASES NOW. I ALWAYS BOUGHT THE OFFICIAL RELEASES, AS A WAY TO SAY THAKS FOR THE ACCESS TO THE BOARDS ALL THESE YERAS, WAY BEFORE THE ARCHIVE EVEN JUST THROUGH FRIENDS AND LEAKS. NOT ANYMORE. WITOHOTU OUR MONEY ON THE '70'S AND '8-0S THIS BAND WOULD HAVE FADED AWAY, NOT TO MENTION ALL THE FREE ADVERTISING THEY ENJHOYED FROM US OVER THE YEARS PASSING OUT ALL THOSE FREE TAPES TO PEOPLE. IN ADDITION TO THE 100 GRAND OR SO I SPOENT MYSELF ON TICKETSL; ABUMS, CLITHES, ON AND ON FOR 30 YEARS, I BROUGHT IN ANOTTHER $3-5,000 FROM FIRNED SI TURNED ON TO THE BAND. MULTIPLY THAT BY 2 MILLION, JUST TO BE CONSERVATIVE, AND THAT IS ABOUT $6-9 BILLION DOLLARS. AND THIS IS THE THANKS THEY GOVE US? THIS IS GARBAGE. AND NO, THIS IS NOT A FAIR COMPROMISE BY ANY STRETCH. THE BOARDS NEED TO BE AVAILABLE FOR DOWNLOAD. MOST OF THE SHOWS I WANT THEY WILL NEVER RELEASE ANYWAY, SO HOW THE F ANM I HURTING THEIR INTEREST? ESPECIALLY WHEN I BUY ASLL THEIR OFFICIAL STUFF. IT'S THESE KOIND OF STUPID POLICIES THAT HURT THEIR INTERESTES, NOT HAVING DOWNLOADS AVAILABLE. GET REAL GUYS! THE DEAD USED TO BER SMART, WHAT HAPPENED!?!?

Nobody is doubting anybody's dedication, I just can't believe there are people out there who do not feel this is a serious issue, that's all. I don;t think I am "all that' to use your term, I just think my 300-plus shows and decades worth of dedication and cash and advertising for them are woorth something. if you do not, then we can agree to disagree. i appreciate your comments. I think I type pretty good for someone woith one arm. have a nice day.

damn dude - i didn't mean to bust you on the typing if you are handicapped. My sincerest apologies - seriously. I feel like a schmuck now - sorry. One of my dearest friends if handicapped froma skiing accident - so the last thing i want to do is what i just did. - i cannot apologize enough.
But, i do agree with you too - i am in your league with money spent and shows attended. i have held onto my boycott of commercial dead releases since Nov "05. My money now goes to Kimock. It is just that this has been beaten to death over that past few months - but your perspective is appreciated and legitimate - peace my frined.
Again, sorry to jump all over you - this is a volatile issue and i jumped out of line on you.

It's great to read all these POSITIVE vibes. The whole issue should bring the community closer.(sort of like when we lost Jerry?) I'm looking after about 300gb of the sb's
if someone needs somethin' that happens to be stored on these hard drives, I'm happy to share

one love.

Stumbled onto this site only about a month ago, and have been loving every minute of it. Can't get bitter about losing something you never knew you had, but I am in complete agreement that pulling the soundboards does seem to be contrary to the original intent of sharing the music throughout the community. Thanks for the heads up on Gdlive, I've been hoping to run across the 3 nights at Alpine in 89, streaming them just doesn't cut it, one down two to go. If anyone has any thoughts or copies they'd like to share, please drop me a line at eaxelson3@comcast.net.

Thanks to LMA and all of you who have rekindled my fire, the awakening has been long over due...

No trade necessary (i recieved 10/29/77 which BTW is another outstanding show, by groveling for a great Van Morrison SB) the kind trader sent me the extra out of kindness. What the hay, email me your snailmail address at and I'll send you that 10/29/73. ( 1 cd)
Both years on 10/29 were excellent-a lucky date i guess.

being spoiiled is not the issue, the technology is there, the music ois always free, so use it. why go back to snail mail and spending years looking for a board you can find in 20 seconds on the archive? its not a question of being spoiled, its an issue of using common sense and what is available to us.

the issue is not crying like a baby cause the bottle has been takin' away and throwing a hissy fit and boycotting the dead and so on and so on . i dont believe the dead deserve the boycotting and i wont back any boycott of the greatest band on earth . i am not calling you a baby i am talkin in general...

check sites like bt.etree,shn/flac,dimeadozen,tmnsp.net...and there are many ftp servers popping up everyday ...just have to do a little hunting like the old days..makes it more fun !
